My Music Monday - Now that I can Dance - Do You Love Me?


I know Mitchell used this video a few weeks ago, but it is so neat.  It took a couple of years, and several million dollars to program the robots to dance.  Millions of measurements and calculations are made each minute to make this happen.  Our brains do this, without us even noticing that our brains are doing this.  Amazing! The more we learn about machines, the more we learn about ourselves.

    1. When asked why they did it, the response was something along the line of to prove it can be done. If we are going to reply on machines, the machines need to be able to move without falling over. I was explaining recently why disheveled personal appearance is seen as a sign of cognitive decline, when you think about it showering and dressing requires complex mental skills of organization and sequencing, persons with dementia find that challenging, and often let personal appearance slide.
